WWE is planning a Draft that will take place over the Oct. 11th episode of SmackDown and Oct. 14th episode of RAW, according to Dave Meltzer and John Pollock.
The 2019 WWE Draft will be done to “freshen up” the rosters and additional changes are expected to made in October.
As reported here on WrestlePages.com last month, WWE officials have been discussing a new Draft concept to build permanent rosters for RAW and SmackDown. This is a new directive from Vince McMahon, as it was initially reported there would be no major roster changes ahead of SmackDown’s premiere on FOX on Oct. 4, 2019. Plans are being kept quiet, as executives from the USA Network and FOX will be the first to know once the concept is finalized.
